No matter the situation, First Student teams across North America work together to care for students.
Though most schools in North America have closed in an effort to flatten the curve and prevent the spread of COVID-19, First Student employees at locations across North America are pitching in wherever they can to help their communities in any way they can.
Some First Student locations have been hard at work providing services from transportation to those in need, to delivering home learning packets to students in their districts.
More so, all across America, bus drivers have been delivering breakfast and lunches to the students on their route who rely on the meals their schools provide. In Buffalo, N.Y. for example, more than 200 First Student bus drivers delivered almost 7,000 home learning packets to children in their district.
In Laconia, N.H., drivers are working hard to deliver hundreds of meals to students. While in Palm Springs, Calif., drivers have delivered over 17,000 meals to students in their district so far, and that number continues to climb.
These are just a few of the numerous examples of how First Student employees are leaning in to serve their communities during this time of uncertainty.
Driving a bus is more than a job for most of our employees, and caring for students is more than a tagline. It’s a mission that First Student employees take to heart.
